Vicks Vaporub Uses

There are many different Vicks Vaporub Uses that have been recommended by doctors, researchers and the products manufacturer.

Relieving congestion

  • Although used for relieving decongestion, Vicks Vaporub isn’t a decongestant. Instead, the vapours created containing menthol and camphor create a cooling sensation in the nasal passages that trigger receptors in your brain, tricking you into feeling like you’re breathing more freely.

Easing cough

  • Camphor, eucalyptus oil, and menthol are all listed as cough suppressants by the National Institutes of Health. It is however NOT recommended when your cough is productive, i.e. producing phlegm or if it’s chronic.

Soothing sore muscles

  • Both menthol and camphor are topical analgesics, meaning they’ll relieve pain when rubbed into the skin. Research has shown that products containing camphor and menthol create a cooling sensation that will temporarily override your ability to feel pain in muscles and joints.

There are other Vicks Vaporub Uses that have little to no research done to support them, but some people have said they’ve tried and found favourable results.

  • Fading stretch marks
  • Training pets
  • Healing rough skin on your heels
  • Repelling mosquitoes
  • Treating acne spots
  • Relieving headaches

Vicks Vaporub On Feet

No scientific studies have been performed on whether Vicks Vaporub on feet eases a cough or congestion. Typically it’s been a home remedy, and no one is certain whether it actually works or not.

One of the popular theories that can be found online is that Vicks Vaporub stimulates the nerves found in your feet, which in turn stimulates the spinal cord, then, the medulla oblongata, the part of the brain that regulates coughing. Seems a bit farfetched doesn’t it?

Ask your doctor or local pharmacist about Vicks Vaporub on feet the next time you see them.

Vicks Vaporub Toenail Fungus

In a study conducted in 2011, the effectiveness of Vicks Vaporub Toenail Fungus was tested. Although a small test group, 18 people applied the ointment on their toenails over a period of 48 weeks.

By the end of the treatment period a total of five participants were totally cured of the fungal infection. Whilst the others either saw a distinct improvement or no change at all.

If you are considering using Vicks Vaporub Toenail Fungus to treat a fungal infection, please reconsider and use a proper treatment option that are anti-fungal, such as Loceryl or Amorolfine.

Vicks Vaporub Pregnancy

Vicks Vaporub Pregnancy is safe to use during pregnancy. However, using medications during pregnancy without first asking your midwife or doctor isn’t recommended. Certain medications could cause harm to the health of your baby, short-term or long-term. It’s better to seek medical advice rather than risk harming your baby unnecessarily.

Once you have the go ahead from your doctor or midwife, Vicks Vaporub Pregnancy can be used.

Vicks Vaporub Benefits

Some of the lesser known Vicks Vaporub benefits include, although not scientifically proven things such as:

  • Insect repellent. Perfect for when you suddenly run out of repellent or have left it elsewhere.
  • Can provide headache relief in some people.
  • Can help cracked or dry areas on your feet.
  • Prevent pet accidents. Leave some Vicks Vaporub in the places where incidents happen more often. Veterinarians say that both dogs and cats can’t stand the small of Vicks.
  • Although not proven, some people have reported Vicks Vaporub helping reduce stretch marks over a 2 week period.

There are other Vicks Vaporub benefits you may find online, but the majority of them won’t be scientifically proven or may work for some and not others. If you aren’t sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
